EUR/CAD is under pressure
Information is not investment advice
EUR/CAD has tried to return above the previous support and now resistance line connecting the lows of 2015 and 2017. However, last week the euro failed to close above this area and the 200-week MA (1.4868). This week, another attempt of bulls to test this level failed. On D1, all the key MAs - the 200-, 100- and 50-day moving averages are above the current price keeping it under pressure. On H4, there’s a series of lower highs: each time buyers tried to push the price higher, they failed earlier than before. There are still support levels at 1.4750 and 1.4725, so conservative traders will be sure of a top when the pair slides below 1.4720. The target will be at 1.4600. On the upside, a close above 1.4860 is needed to open the way up to 1.4920 (100-day MA).
This week, there are a few high-probability trade ideas I'd like to recommend to you. Trading these setups, be sure to implement a proper risk management approach.
On Thursday, the 2nd of February, the Bank of England will publish its report concerning interest rates and inflation data for the Eurozone. Professionals and investors anticipate that Andrew Bailey’s lead team of policy makers will likely raise interest rates to 4%; the highest in over a decade, for the tenth time in a row.
The first FOMC meeting comes after a buildup of anticipation from traders and investors alike, as the markets await what posture the Fed will take regarding the interest rates; would there be a hike or a cut in interest rates? Recall that the Federal Open Market Committee had previously ended the year 2022 with a 50bps hike, and an indication from Powell, the committee chairman, that the Fed could consider raising interest rates by 75bps in the course of the year 2023.
